Plan Description



• Plan is intended for a triathlete who has just completed a half-distance triathlon (swim = 2k, bike = 90k, run = 21.1k)
 


This is a three-week recovery plan designed for a triathlete who has just completed a half-distance triathlon on the previous weekend and starts on the Monday following the race.
 
This plan guides the user day-by-day through a gradual return to normal training. Training intensity and duration increase slowly over the three weeks. The emphasis is on general body strength, skill enhancement, and aerobic endurance fitness. At the end of the plan you will be ready to start Base 3 training in preparation for the next race of the season.
 
To get this plan for free, use coupon code “free” when prompted.
 
(Note that this plan does not include expected workout TSS and does not use the “Workout Builder” format. TSS, however, is still calculated on completion of every workout. Those plans with “NEW” in the title include both expected TSS and use the workout builder feature.)
 


After your event, please provide feedback on how this plan worked for you.
 
“Thanks again for your interest in my training plans, and I hope your training and racing go very well this season.” —Joe Friel
